1 in 10K come for the show , HR . Maybe its always been that way to certain extent .
I am a touch head ( who was into 'punk' music ) , and was along for the party .
At first . And I was not alone , by far . And it didn't take long before many T-heads had the GD hunger . There was so much to learn . So much history . It was compelling .
It's always the first to join a club to be the most ready to enforce the 'rules' . We were complaining that the scene had lost something by '89 !
I do think many vets saw post TOG and headed for the hills . The scene missed that presence .
I would love a 46'PITB . I did see a 21 1/2' Terrapin > MLBJ . I hope that counts . ;)

I thought it was kind of cool that lots of new young folks were getting into the band, it was too big for me and just didn't have the magic it used to. But it just seemed to me also that a higher % of the people showing up were just plain rude or mean, "Are you kind", not a part of it. After all a culture had built up for about 22 years and was invaded. But people as a whole were just getting ruder everywhere. When one door closes another opens and for me this meant seeing lots of blues shows by many of the greats that are now gone. Started to go to Dead spin-offs in late 90's, P and F, Other Ones, etc. and the crowd seemed to have much more of that old happy spirit than the late 80's crowd. Pretty much all heads and friendly smiling ones at than.
